The newest additions to my little stash: what did I buy lately?

While everybody is still enjoying in Christmas gifts, I would like to share with you what I treated myself with lately. As mentioned before in some other posts, I’m really trying to keep myself on a no-buy regime, but weak as I am, I relapse from time to time, so here are the newest editions to my beauty stash:

Lookfantastic x Molton Brown limited edition box – I discovered Molton Brown shower gels in LF advent calendar and I fell in love immediately! Such special and unusual scents!! My favourite is Pink Pepperpod! This box was really a great bargain. I just love the packaging of this box.

Lookfantastic x MAC limited edition box – Since I do not have anything from Mac, I thought that this box was a good choice to check out all: lipstick, mascara, lip gloss, their famous fixing spray. For the moment, I only tried the lipstick (Twig 824) and it’s perfect creamy nude shade (it looks a little bit darker on the photo).

Acwell N5.5. balancing micro cleansing foam – for me the cleansers are probably the only product category where I cannot comitt to one special product.  I’m always searching,  trying, testing, looking for a new one although I found some really nice cleansers. I chose this cleanser mostly because I like the brand (Acwell licorice toner is one of my favourite toners) and the fact it advertises low ph.

Liz K first C serum 13% – As I probably mentioned already, my skin adores the serums containing vitamin C and I constantly have at least one C vitamin serum in my routine. I will empty soon my Melano CC serum, so I wanted to try something new. Can’t wait to try this.

Klavuu nourishing lip sleeping pack – I only tried 2 kind of lip sleeping packs (Laneige, Carenel) and neither one was good for me. I hope this one will be better.

Macadamia hair treatment – My hairdresser is using this for my hair, so I thought that I should have it also at home.

Blithe Tundra chaga pressed serum – I think I saw this product for the first time on Gothamista’s youtube channel a while ago and I liked the idea of the pressed serum. However, the price is a bit steap and no samples are available, so I couldn’t make myself buy this. That’s why we have Black Friday discounts to buy the things like this. This was a catch from  Beautybay.

Tonymoly Pro Clean Smoky eyes & lips makeup remover – this is repurchased item. It is my HG when it comes to makeup removers.

Knowing how I like the sheet masks, I do not think that my new-in post is possible without at least one sheet mask. This time I bought Klairs Midnight blue calming, two kinds of A by bom and Dr. Jart Ceramidin.

Scinic peptide ampoule – lately I’m into the peptide products a lot!! I tried Klairs midnight blue drops and for the moment, I use The Ordinary Buffet. I see that overall appearance of my skin improved, so I will keep using the peptides serums. This one is highly recommended by the girls on a forum thread I follow. And I got a sheet mask as a gift.

The Body Shop body yoghurt – since TBS doesn’t have any store in my country, whenever I travel and come across The Body Shop store, I always buy myself something  (body butter, shower gel, etc) and always buy some presents for my family. This body yoghurt was bought in Budapest.

Different makeup items – I bought few lipsticks (liquid ones: Milani and Sleek  and Nyx lipstick).

Did you treat yourself with some skincare or makeup product lately?

Till next time, stay healthy and beautiful!

What did I buy lately?

Hello everybody!

It’s been a while now since I posted something on my little blog. I work a lot during summer, and I do not have much time for anything else. But now, when the winter is approching I will have time for fun, including my blog.

I was trying to keep myself on a cosmetic shopping diet since I really hoarded quite a lot lately and my beauty stash is really huge. However, from time to time, I treated myself with something I had on my wishlist for a longtime, sometimes  after a hard day at work, I bought something just to reward myself and sometimes I simply could not resist to a discount code or a special price.

So below you can see some results of the actions I undertook lately 😁

Peter Thomas Roth set of 6 different mask – this is a great set to try these rather expensive masks which have a HG status for many women.

May Coop Raw sauce – when I saw that it was on a promotion at Jolse.com, I couldn’t resist to buy since I had it for such a longtime on my WL.

Manyo Overnight miracle sleeping pack – if the reviews are true, this will be a miracle product. Sleeping packs are probably the only category of Kbeauty products that I didn’t explore enough. I’m really looking forward to try this.

Pyunkang yul mist toner – one of my favourite hydrating toners. I always buy it on Iherb when they offer a discount on Kbeauty items. This time I bought two bottles.

Blithe Patting water pack Energy yellow citrus & honey – usually the splash masks from Blithe are quite expensive. I bought this one for only 12 USD since it was discounted due to the expiry date in March 2019. I will have to open it and use it quickly, so I will see soon if it is really worth that retail price it usually has.

Saem aloe vera gel 99% – during the summer, I always like to have an aloe vera gel in case of sunburns, insect bites or stings, etc. I purchase this Saem aloe when  Iherb had a discount on all aloe range.

Melano CC serum – my skin adores the serums with C vitamin and I have been reading only excellent reviews about this Japanese serum. The one from Klairs that I have been using this summer, really made a difference for my skin, so I really have some high hopes from this one.

Kose Softymo cleansing oil – This is replacement for my Hanyul Pure Artemisia cleansing oil which was excellent.

Olivarrier dual moist toning lotion – This was also a part of my WL for a long time. Since it advertises 5.5 ph, this should be a replacement for my Acwell licorice toner that I simply adore, but that is rather difficult or almost impossible to find lately.

A by bom Ultra water leef sheet mask – basically I bought this since I thought that it had an interesting shape as “sister” from same brand that I had longtime on my WL and which I mentioned when I wrote about my Ebay wish list. I think I made a little mistake about the shape. However, maybe I will like the mask itself.

Morphe 35F Fall into frost palette and Morphe brushes – Beautybay will no longer sell Morphe, so they had 50% on everything in order to sell out the stocks. I couldn’t resist and bought this palette and some brushes. I read that Morphe eye shadows are great, so I look forward to try them.

Milani eye primer – I bought this only because of price. I do not put a lot of eye make up, so I do not have high expectations. I would only like that my eye liner survives throughout the working day without making me look like a panda.

Eyenlip gold snail eye patches – since I will run out of my Shangpree Marine eye patches soon, I had to buy new ones. Up till now I think I didn’t repurchase any of the patches I tried so far, although I really liked some of them (Berrisom placenta, Petitfee gold snail). My advice to you is that you don’t have to pay a lot of money for this kind of product.

I used a promo price on Beautynetkorea to buy another eye patches from Eyenlip: Salmon oil nutrition eye patches (with salmon oil and 8 kinds of peptides). The packaging really looks like it is a luxury product. We will see if the effect will match the look.

Mad Hippie C vitamin serum – this is 2nd vitamin C serum that I bought lately. Up till last year, this was a regular part of my routine and I just loved it. Although it was my HG serum, I replaced it with Kbeauty serums. Big discount on Iherb was an opportunity to remind myself how I loved this serum.

And last, some essential oils from Oshadi: tea tree and eucalyptus. I akways have a bottle of tea tree oil in case some pimple appears or to prevent the toenail fungus or just for adding in the water while cleaning my bathroom.

So, did you treat yourselves with something lately? What did you buy?

I hope that I will not be absent from my blog again for 2 months like this time.

Till then, stay healthy and beautiful!

 

 

 

 

 

My new arrivals: what did I buy lately?

Hello everybody!

When I started to write my little blog, I was thinking that I would post 2 times per week. But, since I work a lot, I hardly find some time to finish what I started to write. That said, I go back to the real subject of this post.

There is nothing better than arriving home and seeing that few packages arrived and wait for you to open them! This happens to me quite often, since I order a lot online, but  I’m sure that the happiness I feel when opening the packages, will never diminish.

Besides this, I find myself often being target of my older household members’  jokes, because of number of packages I receive and the fact that I order my cosmetics mostly from Asia. They find this last part hilarious 😁

So, what was the content of the boxes I received lately?

As usual, I do not have a lot of make up in my new arrivals; most of it are different skincare products.

Klairs Blue youth activating drop – the instructions said that this is used as a first step after the cleansing. I’ll try this when I finish my Tosowoong First essence Timeshift.

Petitfee Azulene soothing pads – Can’t wait to try those pads. I couldn’t find lots of reviews for this, but last few days the bloggers started to talked about them and it’s only positive for now (I see now that I forgot to take the picture).

Holika Holika aloe soothing gel

Peripera Peri’s Ink the velvet Oops fuchsia – I already have one Peripera Ink from Airy velvet line (Sold out red) and I love it!! Hope that this one will also be great.

Klairs Freshly juiced Vitamin E mask – I always wanted to try this mask, but I didn’t want to buy a full size product. I was so happy when I found these samples.

Iunik Beta glucan serum – apparently betaglucan is a good replacement for hyaluronic acid (that what I read somewhere), but it won’t dry the skin as hyaluronic acid sometimes does.

Missha bb cream trial kit – I bought 2 kits for my sister to try the shade #29. I will keep my perfect shade #27.

Urban Decay Naked 3 eye shadow palette – I always wanted to buy one of UD palettes; I chose this one after reading somewhere that this is a great choice for green-eyed girls and I’m one of them.

Aveda Be curly curl activator – I’m always looking for something which would bring back life to my curls (they are lost after an extensive period of hair-loss).

I didn’t use most of those products before, with the exception of Missha bb cream, so I’m really curious about them, especially about Klairs youth activating drop and Aveda curl activator.

As usual, I got a lot of samples with my orders from Korea.

Did you try any of the products I bought?

Till my next post, stay beautiful and healthy.
